Hi All;

Please help me.This is my issue: I amnew struts2.Its going inside the validate() , but not display in browser.

Action class is:

public class UserAction extends ActionSupport {
private CountryDAO countryDAO = new CountryDAO();
private List<User> lstUser;
private User user;
private UserDAO userDAO = new UserDAO();

public UserAction(){

public User getUser() {
return user;

public void setUser(User user) {
this.user = user;

public String execute(){
try {
userDAO.persisteUserCountry(getUser().getCountry().getName(), user);
}catch(Exception e) {
System.out.println("----" + e.getMessage());
return SUCCESS;

public void validate(){

if(getUser().getUsername().length() == 0){
addActionMessage("User Name is required");

if(getUser().getPassword().length() == 0){
addActionMessage("Password is required");

if(getUser().getPassword().length() > 6){
addActionMessage( "Minimum passsword length is 6");

System.out.println("###########" + this.hasActionMessages());


My Jsp is like this:


<div id="result">Submit form bellow.</div>
<s:form action="accountTypeAction" >

<s:textfield name="user.username" label="Email" required="true" />
<!-- <s:textfield name="confirmEmail" key="label.confirmmail" size="20" /> -->
<s:password name="user.password" label="Password" required="true"/>

<s:select name="user.accountType" label="Account Type" list="#{'peronal':'peronal','company':'company'}" />
<s:select label="Country of residence" name="user.country.name" headerKey="- - -"
headerValue="Select Country"
listValue="name" />

and struts.xml is :
<include file="struts-default.xml"/>

<!-- Configuration for the default package. -->

<package name="default" extends="struts-default">

<action name="accountType" class="com.providence.pgw.action.CountryAction">
<result name="success">userAccountType.jsp</result>

<action name="accountTypeAction" class="com.providence.pgw.action.UserAction">
<result name="input" type="redirect-action">accountType</result>
<result name="error" type="redirect-action">accountType</result>
<result name="success" >emailVarification.jsp</result>

<action name="emailVerify" class="com.providence.pgw.action.UserAction" method="displayPersonalInfo">
<interceptor-ref name="params" />
<interceptor-ref name="validation">
<param name="excludeMethods">displayPersonalInfo</param>
<result name="input" >activationKeyExit.jsp</result>
<result name="error" >errorActivationKey.jsp</result>
<result name="success">personalDetails.jsp</result>

Piraba please UseCodeTags when you post a source code.

I don't know why the code is not working (might be because of your interceptor configuration) but generally addFieldError method is used if you want to add an error message for a particular field...
